Stampin’ Up! is doing a big Color Revamp with the new Annual Catalog in June. Some colors are leaving and we have some returning In Colors. One of the big favorites is Blackberry Bliss. This is a wonderful deep purple that is very rich and fun to work with. It is one of the colors that coordinate with the Nature’s Poem designer paper which is part of the Nature’s Poem Suite that I presented at On Stage. Today I am sharing a set of cards that I had on my display board that featured the Nature’s Poem designer paper along with the Rooted in Nature stamp set and the Nature’s Roots framelits. All three cards stay with the same color combo — Blackberry Bliss and Petal Pink (a new In Color).
This card has lots of leaves. I stamped the leaf with Blackberry Bliss first and stamped it down both sides of the Whisper White layer. I cleaned the stamp good and then used Petal Pink ink and stamped the leaf upside down the center. To Thank You For All You Do is stamped with Blackberry Bliss and centered across the card front.
For this card I used the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder adding some texture with the leaves designer paper. I stamped You Are Wonderful with Blackberry Bliss ink and added some leaves that I stamped off for a lighter shade. I added a Lace Doily behind the layers (these are retiring so get them before they are gone). I took a 6 1/2″ piece of the Blackberry Bliss twine and separated the strands, then added them beside the designer paper layer for some more texture.
The final card in this group has two different designs from the Nature’s Poem Designer Paper. I added a piece of the Blackberry Bliss Twine across the center. The Thinking of You is stamped with Blackberry Bliss ink and cut out with the Stitched Shapes Framelits then layered on Petal Pink scalloped circle and Blackberry Bliss circle both cut using the Layering Circles Framelits. The flower leaves were stamped with Petal Pink and cut out with the Nature’s Roots Framelits.
This suite of products is so versatile — great for masculine, feminine, birthdays, sympathy, all occasion. It will be a must have for everyone.
